I have for sale two copies of the SMC Pentax-A 50/1.2. They are fanstastic lenses, I just seldom use them becasue they are MF. I recently aquired the second copy through a trade, which is why I have two copies. I've used them both and cannot tell the difference between (IQ wise). The focus rings on both copies are smooth and the aperture rings click into place nicely.

One copy is in slightly better cosmetic condition overall with slightly little less wear on the body. There is a little dust present in both copies, although again the one copy is a little cleaner. There is one somewhat prominent piece of dust in the other copy, although it has no impact on IQ as I tested it extensivley to find out for myself. This copy also has slight coating loss (pin head size)near the edge of the front element If you buy the lens and have any issues with the IQ, I will happily take it back for a full refund.

I am asking 485 USD for the copy in better condition (S/N 1411123) and 435 USD for the copy that shows a little more wear (S/N 1411257).

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
